The nationwide campaign comes nearly two weeks before the Oct. 7 voter registration deadline for Texans to cast ballots in the Nov. 5 election. A completed and signed application is also required by this deadline for those who have had recent name and/or address changes.
Montgomery County voters may be electing new school board members or city council members and voting on constitutional amendments, among other ballot items. Early voting kicks off Oct. 21 and runs through Nov. 1 statewide.
Citizens can confirm their voter registration status at the Montgomery County voter registrar’s website or at the Texas secretary of state’s website.

- be at least 18 years old;
- be a United States citizen;
- not have been determined by a court exercising probate jurisdiction to be totally or partially mentally incapacitated without the right to vote;

- be a resident of the county in which the application for registration is made.
Those who have not yet registered to vote have several options:
- Download and print an application in English or Spanish.
